A dense mounding shrub with glossy dark green foliage and a profusion of creamy green-tipped, red bell flowers from mid-summer to winter. The nectar-rich tubular flowers are highly attractive to honeyeaters, and other small birds will feed upon visiting insects. A good feature plant for a shrubbery, for containers and low hedging, a very easy care plant. Does well in sun to shade, and on a wide range of soils as long as they are well drained. Good for coastal positions.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
